According to a new rumor circulating the internet, the release date of the upcoming Diablo 4 could easily be pushed back.
According to a new rumor, the upcoming Diablo 4, which is currently set to release on June 6th, may have its release date pushed to a later date. Diablo 4 was first officially revealed to the world at BlizzCon 2019, but four years later, it still hasn’t been released to the general public. It’s been over a decade since Diablo 3 was first released, so fans are understandably eager to get their hands on the long-awaited Diablo 4.
Many people are going into Diablo 4 with some apprehension about what the final product will be like. Diablo Immortal was a huge financial success for Blizzard, but the game drew widespread criticism from fans for its microtransactions. Diablo 4 is promised not to have the same issues as Diablo Immortal, but only time will tell. In the meantime, fans hoping to play the game themselves will have to wait a little longer than expected.
Horns, one of the users on the Resetera forums who leaked the exact release of Hi-Fi Rush, made some claims about other big games coming out in 2023. In a forum post, Horns claimed that both Redfall and Starfield are in rough shape, and claims that Bethesda wants to push Starfield’s release to fall 2023. In the same post, Horns said that Diablo 4 is similarly “in rough shape” and that the game’s June 6 release date is “questionable.” He provided no evidence to support these claims, but Horns is more credible than others online who claim to have insider information. Regardless, fans should take this info with a massive grain of salt.
Fortunately, Diablo fans will have a chance to play the game well before its release. Diablo 4’s closed betas are over, and plans are to hold an open beta for the game later this year ahead of release. Even if Diablo 4’s release date is delayed, there’s a good chance that fans will be able to play the open beta sometime in the next six months. And when the open beta takes place, the regular appearance of the game can’t be too long.
Diablo 4’s release date has already been pushed back several times, so fans of the franchise could be especially frustrated if it’s rumored to be pushed back again. Others, on the other hand, want Blizzard to delay the game as many times as necessary to ensure that the product that comes out is worthy of the franchise’s lofty legacy. For now, the official word is that Diablo 4 will be released in June, so fans don’t have to worry about the release date slipping just yet.
Based on the information so far, Diablo 4 will be released on June 6 for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
